We have positive news today: reinventing house retrofits could cut UK head demand by 40% 🌍🏠 Our very exciting report on the Dutch ‘#energiesprong’ (energy leap) approach is out today. Read it here or follow this twitter thread for its main findings: bit.ly/2WGnbSt 1/12
The UK has some of the least heat efficient housing stock in Europe. In 2017-18, there were an estimated 50,000 excess winter deaths, a figure not seen in over four decades. Heating our homes, inefficiently or otherwise, is also a major source of carbon emissions. 2/12
With over 60% of loft and cavity walls insulated, cheap solutions to #energyefficiency are running out. Current schemes are 3x more expensive than older versions and will at best reduce building emissions by 53%, well below the 80-100% we will require towards 2050. 3/12
